"I'm Right Here" - CG Animated Music Video



Tom Hankins and his team of artists are back with a new video. This time it's the music video for the Mr. Probz single "I'm Right Here".

It's fantastic they got this gig. Interesting rendering style, probably inspired by "What Dreams May Come".

The visual style doesn't really work for me. The NPR solution looks like the kind of brushwork an inexperienced painter trying to mimic master painter's brushwork would do, and it looks pretty cheap, where all the brushstrokes are just roundish daubs and without any consideration to form. I don't know the details of how they came up with the NPR algorithm, but I wonder if the person responsible for it is an experienced painter and understands painting at an advanced level. Or maybe they just didn't have the budget to create a more convincing NPR solution.

If I were to work on a painterly NPR solution, I would pay particular attention to the shapes and orientations of values/colors, and decide on a per case basis if the stroke are to be rendered along the length of the form or against the form, so that the brushstroke can be rendered according to the shape and orientation of the forms. This would immediately make the result look much more authentic and sophisticated.

Well I must admit I am a bit indifferent to the resulting effect.

But.... it is far from terrible. It's effective, just not "super-effective".

Shot breakdowns would be cool though if they had any.
